Keynote Speakers

Katie Henry

Katie Henry

Director of Learning
BirdBrain Technologies

The world is Katie's classroom. Seriously. Earlier this year she gave workshops on three continents in three weeks. Formerly a classroom and STEAM teacher, Katie is a licensed principal and K-12 technology integrator who is passionate about breaking STEM stereotypes. Even though she's based in Pittsburgh, PA as the Professional Development Manager for BirdBrain Technologies, you'll usually find her in a classroom in another time zone.

Joseph Herschert

Joseph Herscher

YouTube Personality
Kinetic Artist

YouTube personality and kinetic artist Joseph Herscher specializes in making useless yet comical machines. His absurdist contraptions use familiar objects in unfamiliar ways: books become dominoes, smashing a vase to scare a dog which pulls a leash – all to achieve a simple task, such as turning the page of a newspaper. His inventions have appeared on numerous television shows, from Jimmy Kimmel to Sesame Street. Joseph runs workshops with kids around the world, using humor, physics and undirected play to help foster the next generation of creative thinkers.
